Evaluation inWireless Sensor Networks



The relevant criteria in wireless sensor networks are related to the communication and to the fulfilment of the sensing task. Both are closely related, so that a good communication performance is required to fulfil the sensing task acceptably. For the sensing task, it is relevant that the network has a long lifetime, which means the energy consumption is low. As the communication consumes a significant amount of sensor energy, optimising the energy spent in communication usually means energy optimisation for the sensor network as a whole.
